I just ordered this:
And I had them both monogrammed with the same letter.
Which means that we picked Baby’s name! Actually there’s a frontrunner and a backup name, but they both have the same first initial. We’re pretty sold on the frontrunner, but we wanted another option, just in case she came out looking nothing like our favorite name. Or in case, like, Jessica Simpson randomly names her baby the same thing.
Here’s the part where I’m an asshole and say that I’m not going to tell you the name until the baby is born. It’s more fun to leave something for a surprise, right?
Right? Sorry. Don’t kill me.
I love talking about names. I could talk about them all day long. I always thought picking a name would be the most fun ever. Until I had to do it. Everything was either too popular or way too bizarre, with very little middle ground. I didn’t think we were ever going to find a name we truly loved. Until we did. It was definitely an intuitive a-ha moment. To me, the feeling was similar to finding the perfect wedding dress.
So tell me. How did you pick your child’s name? And did you spill the beans before its birth? Or, if you don’t have a little one, what’s your favorite name and why?
